Shams ol-Emareh, one of the first high-rise buildings of old Tehran, was built with Doostali Khan Nezam ol-Dowleh (Moayer al-Mamalek), that was finished in 1867 A.D.

According to an ISCA report, Nasser-al-Din Shah was interested in building structures like European towers after his trip to Europe, thus, the building of this palace was built by Dawar Ali Khan Neysal-Dawlah Miyar al-Mamalek on the eastern side of the Royal Citadel during two years and the date of completion is 1284 AH.

This palace is located in the eastern section of Golestan palace and belongs to the era of Nassereddin Shah. The building is brick made with thick walls. In some cases the thickness of the basement walls exceeds 600 centimeters and the thickness of the ground floor walls stands in the range of 510, 150 and 120 centimeters

Shamsol Emareh has been the tallest royal building with three stories and two towers on the top. This building used to serve as a place for official receptions and also the private harem of Nassereddin Shah. In his book entitled Meraat - ol - Boldan, Etemad - ol - Saltaneh describes its halls and chambers all equipped with high quality and premium curtains, chandeliers and posters.
